prov1: I’ve been writing all day and my head is ready to explode. I’ll have to put off the story until Sunday at the earliest. I want it to flow smoothly and now it would be choppy. I’ve got so many stories from the streets, I really should put them into a book. My concept would be real life adventures and a learning expo for street smarts.
For example, I also turned down a fabulous gratuity for my work. It’s a good thing I did. The guy making the gift offers was wired by the Ft. Laud Internal Affairs. I told the informant, “I already get paid by the city more than I’m worth, it wouldn’t be right to accept the Super Bowl tickets.” There’s more to the story than that but I’ll bet the detectives listening in puked when I also turned down round trip plane tickets and a week in Las Vegas!
I mean the cops reached for the barf bag when I told the guy, “Have your boss write a letter to my boss if he thinks I did a good job.” LOL Catch you later…

ibb, Snow, & Prov: Thanks. I have an inspector’s background on underground infrastructures. One day, just driving through Ft. Laud Central Beach, I saved about 18 people on a construction site from either getting crushed or losing their legs. Let me know if you want to hear the story. It’s not one I will ever forget. Did you ever hear the old story that everyone has a purpose for something? Maybe that was mine?

Cav: Gen. “Benedict” Dempsey will neither apologize to the woman who lost her son or resign from his chairman political appointment via his slave master Obama. After all the damage from the Left, it’s going to take 25 to 30 years to rebuild our military. That’s Mark Levin’s call and I concur. If “The Beast” Hillary is elected POTUS she will be a Third Obama Term. Everyday that Jeb “The Dreamer” Bush opens his mouth he’s becoming as popular as brown stains on white satin sheets. Cruz/Walker 2016.

You don’t need water to put out a natural gas fire. You turn off the outlying valves and cut the gas supply. Secondary fire burning down buildings is isolated via fire breaks between structures. That’s why code has required “fire breaks” since the 17th Century “Great Fire of London.” To cause such a huge explosion today would require a very large excavator to crack a major gas main. They were supposed to obtain utility underground locations before digging. Duh? Regarding the work crew, check their Green Cards.
My gas bill warns about digging.
Prayers for the injured.
That is very true, which leads me to wonder - incompetence, misinformation to the exact location, dumb chance happening or deliberately done?
(spoken by Cheech and Chong) Hey Chico, we don’t need no stink’in green cards man. Obammy and Eric just lets us come on in with no check outs or nuthin. Wow man, look at all the flames and stuff, man!
Quick sidenote from my own career. Kids quite often pull the colored flags indicating what is where without knowing they are marking something important. Anything near a school we would have the guys come and ping for the lines immediately the day we were digging..
This assumes that they did in fact have the guys find the lines and the help knew what said flags meant.
EXACTLY. Digging a hole isn't brain surgery; it's knowing in advance where buried utilities are that requires some smarts, and these bozos apparently don't have that. I agree; check for green cards. Just think-when ALL the illegal aliens are finally settled, we can expect this all over he nation. Why call dig safe? Not calling will save 1% on the overall cost. Boy, I sure can use that 1%; I have to wax my back next week.

Whip: There are certain times in life when an individual faces a terrible wake-up call. This young American woman has been betrayed by the very Democrats (Demonrats) she embraced and loved. Our American history is crystal clear that the Democrats created slavery in America, founded the Ku Klux Klan, passed all the discriminatory “Jim Crow” laws, and fought Civil Rights legislation in the 1960.s.
The modern day “Demonrats” have virtually destroyed the American Black family with the three trillion dollar failed “War on Poverty.” The “Demonrats” have shattered countless lives by the millions and yet they somehow fooled so many people and somehow managed to blame the Republicans for all the ills of the world.
Perhaps you’ve heard the old adage that, “life is a circle.” Today we have come full circle and even more so, “we may not have all come over on the same boat but we are all in the same boat now.” Obama is at the helm and steering a direct course into the gaping jaws of a tsunami on steroids. Under the slave rule of the “Demonrats” our nation is so TOTALLY screwed! Pray!
What a kind and loving thing to say to someone. I would make such a statement even in jest. Please seek emergency help before you hurt someone.

She’s “trusted?” I suppose as much as any other Marxist traitor? Everyone except Obama is saying that she would be far worse that Eric “The Red” Holder. In the confirmation hearing, she’s refused to uphold federal immigration laws as a promise to Obama. Here’s another sticking point. Jeb Bush supports her appointment. That’s another perfect highlight on how totally wrong Jeb Bush is for America. I’ve posted before, there isn’t a “wit” of difference between “The Dreamer” Jeb and “The Beast”, Hillary.

Zip: Freedom loving Americans fundamentally know and believe that all of the other amendments in the “Bill of Rights” are contingent upon the 2nd, without which all the others would summarily fall. That’s why the Left always has the 2nd Amendment in their sniper sights and always will.
The turd should read the Federalist and the Debates before he runs his pie hole. The more I inform myself the more I know that the 2dnA is the only thing they fear. Fear is the prelude to respect. So far he seems to have neither.
Of course this is why his tired uninformed ass is able to get away with gutting the Constitution. Hell he is the poster boy for everything wrong with the Republican Party.
I am informed you useless piece of flesh. Spiritually, morally and idealistically dead.
Without a doubt!! That's why I stockpile ammo, train my kids about the 2nd Amendment by playing that Big Buck videogame, nap with my .45 AND my pocket constituition. And read Guns And Ammo to them every night. They love it. They understand that Obama and the commies of the Dimocratic Party, want to create their secular califate. Guns = freedom. There is no other way.

getoff: Around 1927 in England the electorate were informed by their Parliament that they had just lost all their gun rights over the course of a three minute vote. There was no recourse for the people because England never had an American style “Bill of Rights.” The RINO Lindsey has made a point but that’s all it is. I don’t want anything he comes up with. You can have him. He’s too “jerky turkey” for me.
 April 17, 2015 at 11:23am
JG: You’re right. I lump him into the basic RINO category. Avoid at all costs!
 April 17, 2015 at 11:15am
I’ll tell you a good check against losing freedom is to avoid you, Lindsey, at all costs! Why don’t you just fade away? You will never amount to the smallest footnote in history. Bye!

Congress is considering another version on the VAT (Value Added Tax)) to bolster shrinking revenues from gasoline sales. How about if they consider the underlying reason why? People don’t have jobs to pay for gas. They don’t have jobs to take that traditional road trip vacation. They don’t even have the money to spend on gas to pick up Grandma for a family dinner. She has to drive herself over. Raising the gas tax is just one more “version” of kicking the can down the road. The big fix America needs is electing Conservatives to high office. Cruz/Walker 2016!

Patriot: What goes on behind closed doors between adults is a private matter and I won’t knock down any doors to find out, but every time I see two men kissing, I reach for the barf bag. I’m saying what bothers me most is the public display of abhorrent behavior as if it’s mainstream, when it never will be.
Anyway, I tend to agree with your allegorical view. Some people truly are bringing “fire and brimstone” down upon their own heads. Then who will they turn to for help, some judge or an attorney? A lot of good they are when the sinner is standing on their head in a pile of manure!

I’ve never listened to the guy. Either I’m out of touch or I have good instincts. In this case, it looks like “good instincts” win. You can mark that down to dumb luck like “winning” the lottery but I’m healthy. Works for me! To be generous, I will share with you a secret of the universe and I won’t charge you one thin dime. Got your attention, hmm?
As an individual I have had to deal with two addictions, tobacco and hard drink. I quit them both, completely. The “secret” is how. Here’s the skinny.
You don’t need a doctor, nor a therapy group, or a halfway house, or even finding Jesus in jail. You need a “brain.” One that tells you that you’re hurting yourself and to get healthy you must quit ingesting the poisons into your body. Motivation is paramount to intelligence. Many people say they want to quit this or that but they don’t t really mean it.
In effect, you have to motivate yourself to better yourself. I didn’t say it was easy, especially if you harbor hopes in some magic pill, hypnotism, or acupuncture. You can kid yourself and keep on with your bad habits anyway. In that scenario, “You can be a King or a street sweeper but everyone dances with the Grim Reaper.”
Just concentrate on motivation. Good luck!

Gonzo: Here’s another interesting question via the fallout from SCOTUS making Obamacare law.
“After the blackmail of Obamacare penalty taxes forces many people to buy overpriced but poorly scaled policies, how many doctors will refuse to accept the coverage?” Then we have to ask what provision is in the law compelling doctors to submit? The answers are a double entendre of fate.
“As many doctors that want to can ignore Obamacare, and there’s no recourse in the law for the healthcare subscribers”.
Unless patients can afford to pay as they go for treatments and services rendered, they won’t receive any. In effect, more people than ever before will be out of healthcare. This will hit the Dregs and old people the hardest. This is the result of Obama destroying the best healthcare system in the world. Somehow we must endeavor to persevere.

One: My comment covers a blanket concern and it’s based upon what the Director of the FBI recently said. “There are domestic terrorists inside every state except Alaska.” That raises a red flag that we’re only sitting back in most cases waiting for the next incident. Government agents with some informant help are infiltrating a few terrorist cells. That helps but it won’t stem the in coming tide of systemic attacks. Nothing will truly help until we curtail our Open Borders Policy.
